IBM shipping dual-core workstation, server

Staff report

IBM unveiled its first dual-core server and workstation today, bringing the x86 platform into the forefront of high-speed processing.

The company is the first to release a dual-core workstation, the IntelliStation A Pro 6217 with Advanced Micro Device Inc.'s Opteron processor. Also revealed were plans to expand the eServer 326 line to include the dual-core Opteron.

"It's certainly an expected move," said Gordon Haff, senior analyst and IT adviser at Illuminata Inc., in Nashua, N.H. "AMD is rolling out dual-core processors, which essentially allows AMD to keep ramping up performance. As you can expect, their OEMs are following suit."
